Lots of splendid, shiny bikes sitting in the sunshine  in the pretty village of Cwmdu last Saturday as everyone gathered for  the annual Charity Bike Show. The Show  raises  a great deal of money for local charities and this year they were supporting the Stroke Rehabilitation Equipment on the Gwenllian Ward at our local   General Hospital  in Glangwili.dsc06053-1It was a lovely afternoon out for all  with   great music to listen to, delicious food to eat  and  all those multi coloured bikes  to admire. Part of the fun is also people watching!

Jim had a great afternoon chatting to  a pal from our village and admiring a bike named after him!!




A hugely enjoyable afternoon ending with the sound of the bikes roaring off  for a scoot around the lanes!

    Thank you once again for a very interesting report on what goes on in this area. Jim must have been in his element.
    What a quaint village Cwmdu is. I have been there many times but you see it in another perspective when you look at a photograph of it.

      Thanks Marie. Cwmdu was buzzing and all credit must be given to the organisers for putting on such a happy event which raises money for some excellent causes. The shop is a delight. It’s like walking back into a shop when we were children….and how many years ago was that?! Cwmdu pub have a great range of activities going all year round. On some evenings they have special menus cooked by local chefs and I’ve promised myself that I will go there to sample a dish one day! We could go together! See you Thursday.

  2. I think that you got the entire history of motorcycles in your photos of the event. I recognize a few of them, but I had never seen some of the others before. It looks like a fun event to see, and I hope that they were able to raise lots of money there.

      Hello Jerry and thank you for reading a post that is so different from anything you enjoy! It’s not something that we do regularly but we do like looking at all the old motorcycles. Some of the new ones look very fierce and fast and that’s not our style at all! These events are very enjoyable though as there always seems to be a great many ‘characters’ around and one wonders what they spend the rest of their lives doing! Hopefully, the Stroke unit will benefit from a substantial donation from all who attended and that’s the best thing about the Bike Show. Thanks again for reading.
